May 15: ink smooshing and doodling

On today’s live session of Art with Mansi, we did some ink smooshing and doodling. I demonstrated three ways you could play with watercolors to get beautiful backgrounds. Have a look at this video and please let me know if you have any questions. Supplies are listed at the end of this blog post as well as in the video description.


Here’s what I made using the techniques I showed in the live video.

Which method is your favorite?

If you followed along and made your own abstract background with doodles, I’d love for you to share them.
